Sweet Georgia Brown

Lyrics: Bernie, Casey, Pinkard
Music: Bernie, Casey, Pinkard

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Great American Music Band in 1974. It played as an instrumental except for scat vocals from Taj Mahal and Maria Muldaur. Also recorded by Pigpen and Jorma Kaukonen as an instrumental for an unreleased album.

According to Jim Parker (who was there) Jerry also played and sang the first verse during the first set of a Grateful Dead concert in March 1971 at the Fox Theater in St Louis, before going off in another direction.

Who's that chick in the yellow dress?
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
Well well well well, that's the girl that I love best
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
Who does the hop and the Texas bop like
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
Well, nobody, nobody, nobody else in town

Well, she's got the other chicks on the spot
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
Oh yeah, 'cause she's got somethin' they ain't got
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
When she goes to take a walk
You gotta want to make that girl talk
Georgia claimed her, Georgia lamed her
Sweet Georgia Brown

Who stops the traffic down at 5th and Main?
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
Who drives all the young lads insane?
(Sweet Georgia Brown)
I ain't gonna leave this town
Long as Georgia's hangin' around
Georgia claimed her, Georgia lamed her
Sweet Georgia Brown
